Las Vegas Churches THIS MAY COME AS A SURPRISE TO THOSE OF YOU LIVING IN LAS VEGAS, BUT THERE ARE MORE CHURCHES THAN CASINOS. NOT SURPRISINGLY, SOME WORSHIPPERS AT SUNDAAY SERVICES WILL GIVE CASINO CHIPS RATHER THAN CASH WHEN THE BASKET IS PASSED SINCE THEY GET CHIPS FROM MANY DIFFERENT CASINOS, THE CHURCHES HAVE DEVISED A METHOD TO COLLECT THE OFFERINGS.THE CHURCHES SEND ALL THEIR COLLECTED CHIPS TO A NEARBY FRANCISCAN MONASTERY FOR SORTING AND THEN THE CHIPS ARE TAKEN TO THE CASINOS OF ORIGIN AND CASHED IN. THIS IS DONE BY CHIP MONKS! OH, I AM SO SORRY, YOU DIDN'T EVEN SEE IT COMING DID YOU?True and sooo funny.

Two Jewish Men Two Jewish men, Moses and Jacob, are talking to one other. Moses says to Jacob: "Jacob, you won't believe this. I send my son to Israel to study. And he comes back a Christian!" Jacob replies, "Moses, Moses! I can't believe you are telling me this! Not one year ago, I send my son to the Holy Land to study...and he too comes back a Christian! What shall we do?" The two men decide to ask their beloved Rabbi. "Rabbi, Rabbi! We send our sons to Israel--the Holy Land--to study. And they come back Christian! We don't know what to do. Can you help us?" The Rabbi responds, "My sons, I cannot believe you are telling me this! Not five years ago, I send MY son to the Holy Land to study. And HE comes back a Christian! I mean, I'm a Rabbi, how do you think I feel? It's so embarrassing." With no other alternative, the three men turn to God. Moses, Jacob, and the Rabbi go outside. They each light a candle, and join hands in prayer. The Rabbi speaks: "God, we come to you for help. We send our sons to the Holy Land to study; to become learned men and do your work. And they come back Christians! We do not know what to do." Suddenly, a gust of wind comes and blows out the candles. The sky darkens, and the clouds open up to the heavens. A big, booming voice echoes down upon the three men......"I can't believe you are telling me this, the same thing happened to ME!"

As a long distance truck driver, I've been to Lost Wages (Las Vegas)many times. What I find funny is how they attract so many gamblers with such a beautiful looking city. Don't people realize that that city is built out of the pockets of losers not winners. The fact the some people place chips in the offering maybe explained by people paying their tythe on their winnings. Great topic of discussion.

This does happen and the nick name of chip monks is really cute. Am glad that they can glean the money they need for these chapels and churches. It works out for them all I think. I heard of this a month or so ago and that that this is a good thing in the midst of all the temprtations of that region. It floors me to imagine living as a regular person in that area. Boggles the mind with the bit of information that I have. Thanks for sharing this one.
